'London Rules' might not be written down, but everyone knows rule one. Cover your arse. Regent's Park's First Desk, Claude Whelan, is learning this the hard way. Tasked with protecting a beleaguered prime minister, he's facing attack from all directions himself: from the showboating MP who orchestrated the Brexit vote, and now has his sights set on Number Ten; from the showboat's wife, a tabloid columnist, who's crucifying Whelan in print; from the PM's favourite Muslim, who's about to be elected mayor of the West Midlands, despite the dark secret he's hiding; and especially from his own deputy, Lady Di Taverner, who's alert for Claude's every stumble. Meanwhile, the country's being rocked by an apparently random string of terror attacks, and someone's trying to kill Roddy Ho.
another gem from Mick Herron, with Jackson Lamb the star turn again. Really can't recommend the Lamb books highly enough, but they should be read in sequence...all the characters (the survivors, anyway) grow and develop along the way. Glad I read them all. Be warned, however - "Nobody Walks" is tangential to the Jackson Lamb series, and introduces a character who plays a role in "Spook Street"...Now waiting for the next!
